Nikos Papadopoulos lives and works in Athens. He is a visual artist and since 2016 he is a member of the artist collective "Ex-ils" - "James Joyce Cafe".

Implements interactive installations through virtual reality and video game software.

Exploring new interpretations, he integrates works of art that have a public character in another kind of sociability, in a virtual world, made in such a way as to be attractive. There he creates the conditions for the spectators, wandering in a virtual environment, to shape the work in real time, in the social exhibition space.

He studied Sculpture at the Athens School of Fine Arts, in the 2nd Sculpture Laboratory, with professor George Lappas (2007-2013). He attended plastics courses at Arts plastiques -Université Paris 8, in Paris, within the program erasmus, 2011. Obtained a master's degree in "Art, virtual reality and versatile systems of artistic expression" with professors Manthos Santorini at Ala, and ASKT University of Paris8, 2013-2018. He holds a degree in Educational Technologist in Electrical Engineering.
